As of this week, my team has been unable to link new issues to Epics in JIRA Cloud. We haven't altered the Epic Link field in any way, and existing links are still functional. The dropdown box to select an Epic for new issues is just now gone. See image below.
Yes, we are aware of this bug. We have already created a bug report regarding this matter: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-43962. We found out that this bug seems to be due to some licensing changes made for JIRA 7.0. While we are working on a fix for this, the workaround would be to activate JIRA Agile free trial. To do so, you can visit Cog Icon > Discover New Applications > JIRA Agile Free trial.
If the license expired before we release the fix, please raise a ticket with us at support.atlassian.com so we can work on an extension of the license.
Hope this helps.
